Fake products undermine industry standards
However this is not the case with fake products and the life cycle of products is reduced leading to long term expense. Genuine products give longer life cycle costs.
Fake products may not be fit for the customers’ design or application. This can cause safety issues for individuals and the environment. Plant failure, un- scheduled shut downs, increased corrosion rates, catastrophic failure causing harm to plant and personnel, are all risks of fake products.
Fake products may appear cheaper, but are of inferior quality and need replacement more frequently. As a genuine manufacturer we ensure all appropriate tests, certification and traceability are in place.
A counterfeit item is a suspect item that is a copy or substitute without legal right or authority to do so.
